Won't Miss #17 -uncovered, open mouth coughers
For a country which is obsessed with wearing surgical masks when there is a flu epidemic or the cold season is at hand, there are an awful lot of people who cough without covering their mouths. Some of them seem to be determined to project as many germs as possible forward as they hack away with their mouths wide open. There isn't even an effort made to cup their hands over their mouths to stop germs from spreading omnidirectionally.
I won't miss being trapped on trains or walking behind people who can't be bothered to cover their mouths when they cough.
